Geweldig mooi huis met zeel veel facciliteiten

By Mattheau Houmes on 19-Jun-2017

We zijn ruim een week in dit geweldige luxe vakantiehuis geweest met kinderen in de leeftijd van 1 t/m 14 jaar. Iedereen vermaakte zich elke dag uitstekend! Het verwarmde zwembad met overkapping is heerlijk. Je kunt zo altijd gebruik maken van het zwembad. We hebben de kap ook vaak eraf gehad, zodat we heerlijk in de zon konden zwemmen en liggen op de ligbedden langs de pool. De tuin is enorm groot en ook het huis heeft veel ruimte, waardoor je met veel mensen toch allemaal een fijne plek hebt. Een fijne keuken, pooltafel, tennistafel, voetbaltafel, vele gezelschapsspelletjes en een x-box die ook erg in trek was bij de kinderen. De slaapkamers zijn erg mooi ingericht met hemelbedden. Het huis is super schoon. Tracey houdt heel goed contact en wil je altijd helpen. We willen zeker graag terug komen en voor deze prijs heb je een zeer mooi huis en veel luxe en comfort. We bevelen dit huis ten zeerste aan!

What an experience

By Cassie Raiz on 23-May-2017

My family and I stayed for a week with a small baby and well what can I say. This is the best accommodation by far that we have ever stayed in. We have travelled around the world and stayed in 5 star accommodation and never have we experienced such luxury! The rooms we stayed in are private, one with a terrace and one with balcony. The salt water pool was heated and we loved taking our baby in every day. There are too many facilities to mention! all baby facilities were provided as well as a pool table, many games, picnic bags, bbq's, BBQ equipment. the list goes on and on. This place would be perfect for small or large families as well as families with small babies. I think this will be our regular summer vacation and are already planning our holiday for next summer!

Perfect Villa for an out of Season Break

By Pat Morris on 08-Apr-2017

We visited end of March for an out of season break for four days to visit family who live locally. We frequently do this and fly down from Southampton to Bergerac with Flybe. The Villa has a heated pool, rare for France, and the house in perfect, with log burners in the main living and kitchen areas and heating in the bedrooms. So well equipped inside and out. Local restaurants, markets, wine tasting at vineyards, golf , little villages and towns all within easy reach.highly recommended

Great cycling holiday

By Mike Jones on 01-Apr-2017

Went with two mates for a last minute special offer break. We try to get together annually in France for a cycling break. Acabanes was fantastic as there's a huge area of quiet lanes to explore from the doorstep and Tracey the owner arranged evening meals to be delivered every evening. Being three guys we made good use of the pool table! Definitely booking again for next Spring.

Property & it's location are simply beautiful

By Alan F on 09-Oct-2016

The property, the grounds, its location and all the facilities and equipment are all brilliant. My family and I, together with my sisters family and my mum, 10 of us in total had an amazing two weeks in the villa. Tracey was absolutely amazing to deal with and her contact with me, information she provides and suggestions of things to see and do were simply the best I have ever experienced. We had a wonderful two weeks in the villa, swimming in the pool, bike riding and exploring the surrounding countryside. Be sure to visit Chateau Thenac at the top of the hill, we did a wine tour and tasting which was excellent. Thanks Tracey for making our holiday in your villa so wonderful and relaxing, you really have thought of everything!

A very special place to celebrate a fiftieth Wedding Anniversary”

By Maggie N S on 23-Aug-2016

We spent a memorable holiday here with a large family group to celebrate our fiftieth wedding anniversary.We wanted somewhere that would cater for all ages and tastes, with luxury. We researched carefully for this and could not have made a better choice. Acabanes exceeds expectations,something for everyone, all ages. The website is comprehensive but still does not do it justice.Wonderful location house and grounds, loved everything, especially the pool and terrace surrounding it.Plenty of other terraces and lovely upstairs balcony where one can choose to while away many an hour reading ,relaxing, sipping a wine, or just enjoying the view.Made use of the services of Matthew the chef, if you choose to book him to cater a meal for you, you will not be disappointed. If you can tear yourself away from just relaxing at Acabanes, the countryside around is worth exploring for the lovely Bastide towns,and markets.Loved our visit to Tracey's recommended vineyard for wine tasting. The younger members of our party made good use of the bikes provided also. Will definitely be visiting Acabanes again.

First Class Holiday Accommodation

By Diana C on 29-Jun-2016

We were a family party ranging in ages from 70 to 7. The villa accomadated us all, with every possible activity you could want. We swam,cycled,played football,cricket and rounders. There was also the gym,sauna,pool table and table tennis. Difficult to tear the younger members away from the villa. An excellent holiday home for all ages. We had a holiday that will always be remembered as very special. I would also recommend Matthew 'the in house chef'. He prepared two excellent meals at the villa , and we also visited his pop up restaurant.

Amazing Property & Excellent Service

By Pete H on 18-May-2016

We stayed for 2 weeks at this property and were a party made up of 3 couples and 5 under 2s. Tracey at Acabanes has thought of everything and this is an excellent place for people with children. Whilst ours we’re pretty young and enjoyed the trampoline and swimming pool, older children would have loved the table tennis, pool table, football pitch, bikes and all manor of sporting facilities. The gite is the best equipped I’ve ever visited, everything has been considered and is of the highest quality. From Denby and Le Creuset crockery, to Christy towels and webber BBQs it was surprising to so so much quality being poored into a holiday let. The decor was lovely and huge comfortable king size beds in the rooms. All manor of kitchen gadgets and tools including a very useful ice machine made catering for 11 no problem at all. The pool was excellent and the cover meant we could swim when there was the occasional windy or chilly day.

Tracey’s attention to detail and caring and attentive customer service has made our stay unforgettable and extremely easy with very small children. We cannot recommend this place enough, its excellent.
